Pioneers. Innovators. These are but a few of the monikers that Yonder Mountain String Band has worn since its inception. From the first Yonder shows in the fall of 1998 to its drive-in tour of 2020, this touring force has brought its adventurous musical spirit to countless venues for nearly a quarter-century. Yonder Mountain String Band is a quintessential ensemble honing its craft night after night on the road; the result is music that doesn’t stand still, it’s always progressing and breaking unprecedented ground.
Yonder Mountain’s early success was fueled by its desire to make a sound distinctly their own, whether performed on crowded stages or selling out the hallowed Red Rocks Amphitheater. The traditional take on bluegrass sound was fused with its diverse musical influences ranging anywhere from punk rock to the Grateful Dead.
Yonder Mountain’s ninth studio album will be released in late 2021. It features founding members Adam Aijala on guitar, Ben Kaufmann on bass, Dave Johnston on banjo, Allie Kral on fiddle and newcomer, multi-instrumentalist Nick Piccininni handling duties on mandolin, second fiddle and anything stringed.
